Let's focus away from this and go to the LtGov race here.

The Republican candiate, EW Jackson, to say the least, is a f***ing lunatic. He has history of saying that Planned Parenthood has done more to harm the black community than the KKK, President Obama is an anti-Semite, and that Obama "clearly has Muslim sensibilities.

EW Jackson may be the greatest gift Terry McAuliffe could have ever received. This guy makes Ken Cuccinelli look like Bernie Sanders.

Yes, he'll be very harmful to Kuccinelli (even more than Kuccinelli is to Kuccinelli). Alvin Greene would have been a better option.

BTW, this guy ran for Senate las year, and he got less than 5% in the GOP primary. You have to be some kind of crazy person to run against Allen in a GOP primary in VA and think you can win.

This guy... EW Jackson will be the new face of the GOP for 6 months if Democrats do their job right. They don't call him Ew for nothing.

Bernie would probably win Vermont if Obama were deemed to have more than 272 evs in the vag.

The Virginia GOP have given the Democrats a great line of attack. You can bet that even if Cuccinelli manages to move to the center, the Democrats will be able to lump him in with E.W. Jackson, who has said such great lines such as these:

Quote
• Referred to gays and lesbians as "perverted," "degenerate," "spiritually darkened" and "frankly very sick people psychologically, mentally and emotionally."
• Said regarding homosexuality: "it poisons culture, it destroys families, it destroys societies; it brings the judgment of God unlike very few things that we can think of."

• Argued that gays seek to "sexualize [children] at the earliest possible age" and use "totalitarian" tactics.

• Argued that "liberalism and their ideas have done more to kill black folks whom they claim so much to love than the Ku Klux Klan, lynching and slavery and Jim Crow ever did, now that's a fact."

• Maintained that Obama "seems to have a lot of sympathy for even radical Islam" and argued that Obama "certainly does have a lot of affection and favor for Islam, that seems to be his priority…Christianity, I don't really think about that with him, I really don't, that's a joke."

• Compared Democratic leaders to "slave masters" who make sure that black people who disagree with them are "punished."


Plus, Mark Obenshain is the nominee for Attorney General, who is far from a perfect candidate, seeing as he drafted a bill that would force women to report miscarriages to the police or face jail time.

Even though McCauliffe is far from the perfect candidate, Aneesh Chopra is a great candidate and neither of the Dem candidates for AG look like they'll have trouble beating Obenshain. Overall, that helps McCauliffe.

Apparently Cooch didn't step in because he was worried about taking heat for blocking an African-American. I don't buy that. He should've exercised his veto.

Virginia elects its lieutenant governors separately, it's not a ticket.

I expect this will hurt Cuckoo's candidacy anyway though.  This EW Jackson guy is a piece of work.

Jackson won't apologize for being batshoot insane, and he also fought against desegregating South Boston in the '80s.

From what I understand Cuccinelli's camp are distancing themselves from their new LG candidate with statements like "we feel the voters should become comfortable with each member of the ticket individually". Virginia has a long history of split ticket Gubernatorial races, so it wouldn't be that unusual if Cuccinelli won but Jackson lost.

And he withdrew the bill when he realized it would do that.

I don't plan on voting for the guy, but let's be fair to him here.

I'm being as fair as the press and his opponent will be to him. That's what matters come November.

I originally thought that the VA Governor's race was a pure tossup due to both candidates being badly flawed, but now I'd have to give a slight edge to McAuliffe.  Cuccinelli, Jackson and Obenshain have a collective history on women's rights which I think is going to be a big problem.  It should not be difficult for us to tie them together.

HAHAHA.

Quote
Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli sought Friday to put further distance between himself and controversial GOP lieutenant governor candidate E.W. Jackson.

Asked in an interview with the radio station WMAL if he embraces Jackson’s candidacy or wants to be judged independently, Cuccinelli said he “absolutely” wants to be judged independently.

I don't think Jackson is taking the hints:

Quote
E.W. Jackson, the Republicans’ choice for lieutenant governor, said Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli II helped plant the seed for his candidacy for Virginia’s second-highest office.

Jackson said he met with Cuccinelli (R) in 2010, when the Chesapeake minister was running for the U.S. Senate. During a brief conversation at a hotel in Suffolk, Jackson said, Cuccinelli suggested that he consider a run for lieutenant governor.

“He said essentially: I think you’d make a good candidate for lieutenant governor. Have you thought about it?” said Jackson, recalling that Cuccinelli had not yet decided to run for governor. “I do remember him suggesting that if it worked out . . . he would be proud to have me as a running mate.”
